"That's just how white folks will do you," Obama writes. "It wasn't merely the cruelty involved; I was learning that black people could be mean
and then some. It was a particular brand of arrogance, an obtuseness in otherwise sane people that brought forth our bitter laughter. It was as if
whites didn't know they were being cruel in the first place. Or at least thought you deserving of their scorn."
Ya its too bad that this is the year 2008 and some people are still stuck in the era of racial discrimination...on all sides.
When the day comes that every single person on this planet acknowledges his/her fellow human being as "a human being" instead of white, black,
brown, red..whatever...then this planet of people will be truely grown up.
